STEVEN FINN BOWLING IN NETS STORY: Pace bowler Doug Bracewell was on Tuesday (March 5) ruled out of New Zealand's first test against England after cutting his right foot on glass while cleaning up after a party at his house. The 22-year-old had been expected to have a fitness test ahead of the first test of three starting on Wednesday (March 6), but coach Mike Hesson told reporters at University Oval in Dunedin that he was still unable to put any weight on the foot. "The physio before we came to training today said he was no chance of playing, so we'll remove him from the 12 he'll stay with us through the week and hopefully be ready in time for the second test," Hesson said. South African-born Neil Wagner is likely to slot into the side in the third pace bowler role. Ian Butler, who was brought in as cover in case Bracewell failed to recover, and left arm spinner Bruce Martin would contest the final place in the starting side. Bracewell sustained the injury while cleaning up his house in Napier after a party on Friday (March 1) when some friends came over to watch Super Rugby matches. Meanwhile, star batsman Brendon McCullum will captain New Zealand for the first time on his home ground since taking over the leadership of the side late last year. "I love playing down here, obviously played for Otago as well and pretty proud of that," McCullum said. "But again, it's not about me, it's about the challenge we've got on the horizon tomorrow." England bowlers James Anderson and Steven Finn are likely to be crucial determinants in the test series. Apart from the opening one-day match which New Zealand won, Anderson and Finn provided a masterclass in hostile fast bowling, giving the New Zealand batsmen little to hit on the small grounds while creating pressure and taking wickets. England were beaten in their only warm-up match ahead of the test series but captain Alastair Cook believed that result would count for little when the action started in Dunedin. "There is a lot of good things out of that," Cook told reporters. "Yes, we're disappointed to lose that game. You know, but actually it doesn't really matter. The important stuff starts tomorrow." The second test begins in Wellington on March 14 with the third with final test in Auckland from March 22.
